A feast for the mind and spirit

EƒM is a unique discussion-based learning program for adult Christian formation through theological education and reflection based on small- group study and practice. EfM deepens one’s knowledge and understanding of Scripture and church history while exploring contemporary issues affecting the church and society. EfM enhances life, enriches faith, and opens doors to other Christians who are also on unique journeys in their faith.

To find out more about EfM, join us for snacks and beverages at 11:30 AM Sunday, October 17th or November 7th in The Other Cup. We will explain what EfM is and isn’t, share our experiences, and welcome questions. For those unable to be with us in person, join us virtually via Zoom at 11:30 AM Sunday October 24th or November 14th. Contact Cynthia McKinley at 703-282-4189 for Zoom credentials.

“EfM has confronted my understanding of theology and Christianity, and provided a broader foundation for me to evaluate these vast fields which I see as critical to my life-long pursuit of God.” – David C.

Enrollment for January 2022 seminars begins October 1 and ends November 18.

Every Baptized Person is Called to Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) invites participants into small, mentored groups that provide the framework for understanding life and shaping actions as Christian faith is deepened. EfM seminar groups meet in local settings and online and provide a four-year curriculum that develops a theologically informed, reflective, and articulate laity.

Have you ever been curious about how the Bible was actually written, or how different Christian denominations developed? Have you wanted to learn more about the individuals and groups who, through the centuries, contributed most to the formation of the Church as it stands today? Have you wanted to focus more on your own spiritual development and personal ministry? If so, Education for Ministry (EfM) may be for you.

If you are interested in registering or you have questions, please contact Tom Hott or Cynthia McKinley.
